Lightroom: Error in deletePhotosfromPublishedCollection: did not call deletedCallback function

Hi, in a LR publishing service, when it comes to the deletion of images that were removed from the collection, it halts with the following error message:


Image is not available



I have found several reports of this happening when the file to be removed from the collection had already been removed manually outside of LR. But this is not the case with me - the file still exists on the hard drive.

I rather believe that it can't handle the # character in file names properly, because the file's name is e.g. 2011-03-27_00-51-50_#165.jpg, but when I right-click on the image in LR and select "show published file in Explorer" it telles me it can't find the image but with the name "S:\\165.jpg, so the part of the file name until the # is missing!

Image is not available

This happens to all the files that have the # in their name.

I am using Windows 7 64 bit, if that matters.

# is an allowed character in filenames in any modern OS, so please fix this annoying bug as soon as possible.

It seems to have been introduced in LR 3.4 or 3.4.1, as I haven't encountered it before, and the # is in almost all my images as it is important for my workflow.

Any ideas for workarounds (other than renaming the files!!!) are also very welcome!

Hi DarkVater, can you please confirm which publish service you see this in? And do you see it anywhere else in the program, other than that publish service?

Hello Victoria, thanks for the speedy reply!

I'm using the hard drive publish service. As said, I haven't encountered this problem anywhere else yet in Lightroom, and I'm using it regularly for two years now; almost all of my 25,000+ photos have that # in their name.

So it seems nobody from Adobe is actually caring for this problem?

We are investigating. Can you tell us which publish service this is happening on - is it a server, or a publish to your hard drive?

Hi Julie, thanks for your reply. Quote from my post above: "I'm using the hard drive publish service." 🙂 It doesn't matter whether I publish it to my Unix server (connected as a network drive) or onto my internal hard drive (Windows NTFS), the same error occurs with both.

Doh! I should've read the comments more carefully, sorry. We'll have a fix for the deletion error in the next dot release, but we need to see whether the # character in filenames is a separate problem.

I've confirmed that the # character issue is unique from the deletion error. I've logged a bug for this.
